Now, the Southern Resident orcas don't eat Pinks, only Chinook salmon. We have always hoped that they would began to eat Pinks though as there are so many of them and we have depleted the Chinooks so much, leaving the orcas with almost nothing to eat anymore. Instead of schooling together now, Chinook here tend to hide in schools of other types of salmon. Maybe that is what was happening and the orcas found a few Chinook and left the Pink alone, or maybe, just maybe, they went after that school of a few hundred Pinks and are learning to be less picky. One can only hope!
